the same everywhere, do aly everywhere, very rapidly, i mentioned egypt is growing, china is growing, india is growing, india is an interesting case as well. win india became independent in 1490 -- 48, in 48, india chose the economic model which was extremely popular at that time, closed border state controlling the industry, you couldn't start a new business, even a small business without the state authorization, and this was supposed to bring india out of poverty. between 1991, was 1%. this was so predictable, so constant, so regular, that economists in india called that the into rate of growth, as if 1% was rted in the indian or hindu culture. in 1991, the finance minister decided to open the border to welcome foreign investments to a certain extent, to the license system, and india is growing 5%, 6%, 7% according to the year. i mentioned in the a because it is less known, what happened in china, i will not elaborate. one of the miracles which is not a miracle,ust an application of sound principle and good economic policy, shows that the cost share, religion, civilization is not a key fa
him about 18 days to make the passage from lasa to india, and during that time, president eisenhower received radio reports from the c.i.a. director, every other day. charting the progress of the tibetans, the c.i.a. had managed to train and put in place some agents, who could accompany the dalai lama on a very hazardous journey through the mountains, and eisenhower was in almost realtime getting information about what was happening. thanks to geshae. geshae was brought down to washington to a safe house in georgetown to translate the radio reports coming out of tibet about the dalai lama and his movement. once he was safely out, a full fledged guerrilla operation began. i think the tibetan national uprising in which some 85,000 tibetans lost their lives, was probably the high watermark of that resistance. many of the weapons that had been flown into tibet and parachuted down to the himalayas came as a result of the american support operation. the dalai lama himself never personally sanctioned this violence. in fact, he was very dubious and for a long time, the united states is the c
of the europeans and particularly in conquered india, as the prime concern. we can easily think of m blocks today. hits observation in fact is one of the few solid and enduring principles of international and domestic affairs. well to keep in mind. at the food crisis is a case in point. it erupted first and most dramatically in haiti in the early 2008, and like bangladesh, haiti is a symbol of the utter misery. like bangladesh, when the european explorers arrived, they said they were stunned because it was so remarkably rich in resources. later it became the source of much of france's wealth. i am not going to run through this sordid history but the current food crisis traces back directly to woodrow wilson's invasion of haiti, which was murderous and brutal and destructive. among wilson's many crimes was to dissolve the haitian parliament at gunpoint, because if refused to pass what was called progressive legislation which would allow u.s. businesses to take over haitian lance. wilson marines then ran a free election in which the legislation was passed by 99.9% of the vote. that is of the 5% of
and i have proof of this. four or five weeks ago i was in india for the first time. very excited. very early in the morning about to visit the taj mahal and picked up the paper as i was going into breakfast and there was a picture of gabriel marquez whoever ran the newspaper new it was a face that readers would recognize. he was very well known in india and the story rather marquez would ride together. to be put on the front page in terms whether he would write again and the same would happen if you ask in india or turkey, they might or might not know but they do know those people who read. which is why i have asserted high maybe wrong, but he is perhaps the world's first global novelists. 100 years of solitude which he published in 1967 was the world's first global novel that would make sense because it makes the transition from what we call traditional society mainly preliterate society from technology society that most countries are. one of the things i discovered >> it appears in the headlines and latin american newspapers and they know what is peacock. >> one of the things that st
happens. [laughter] >> that will definitely have an impact. >> talk about rising competition from india and vietnam and parts of southeast asia, there are now planeloads of american executives arriving americans on the ground as they do not come. it is too expensive already pregnant inflation in vietnam is already 16%. and wages are rising very quickly not to mention that in fee and all the whole population and is smaller and on the much smaller scale. besides a lack of enforcement at this is a huge advantage. we're in an interesting and transitioned that we have the cluster is built up on the coast and now the world is looking for a place to bill lacklustre is where it is cheaper and become more efficient and you take any industry i think of bra industry is in crisis. she is wringing her hands and she does not aware she can source of bra. it is not for attribution but it is interesting to see where they will end up. will they end up in india or vietnam? might experience is it is not that much cheaper to go inland but logistics' are a much larger percentage of cost rages are not as chea
, whether that's new or not, india or pakistan possess nuclear weapons. >> right. >> and as it stands, those are just accepted responsible nations, so-called responsible nations. and then we saw pakistan and india go to war just a few years ago. threatening each other and they were told not to. is it a wise policy now to allow iran, knowing that -- >> to allow -- >> allow iran or to allow po persist or to go ahead with the nuclear armament? knowing that iraq and iran fought each other with the chemical weapons and how iran is threatening other countries in the middle east? and the religious fundamentalists are threatening each other. and now they're trying to contain that but from what i get from yours, it's all a superpower ideology, of course, that is true during the cold war. >> so let me try and answer your question about iranian -- the iranian effort to acquire nuclear weapons assuming that is what they are trying to do. i think we have to look at this in terms of two issues. one is the issue of nuclear proliferation generally and this relates to the faithlessness of the existing nuclea
sence and international competitiveness. it's a rearview mirror argument. china and india are cominup fast, we are aad of them, but our gas is running out and they have a rocket engineá we're not always going to be the world leaders in science. there's definitely a lot of data to support that concern. the answer is let's keyuate more scientists. and you heard that aot but less heard is this incredible fact. we're not creating opportunities at home for our talent either. only 7% of age 35 and under can expect to get tenture track facility positions. the rest need to take their scientific skills into history or into teaching, media if there's any positions left, somethg else. something where they can actually given their knowledge and backgrounds they can do a lot thelp connect science with the rest of society. so our argument in the book is coul't we kill two birds with one stone, couldn't we create new vows in what's cled the science pipeline for the young sciences who want to become a group of experts in outreach to the rest of america. coulde create jobs for theto do s nonprofit jo
'd bng in ladies shoes from india at $5 you'd add a dollar on for the insurance and freight and you'd sell them by the container loads on duane street in new york city and your income statement would be $150,000 in revenue. your cost of goods sold would be 130, your gross profit would be 20 and your fixed profit would be 12 and you would make $8,000 before tax and that was my business model. and that comme by that child in 1982 has been what i've been thinking about almost nonstop for the last 27 years. how do you teach capitalism? how do you teach ownership? how do you teach people to control financial assets, their time and their thoughts. people who have been excluded from the system. people that have not been given a chance to participate in markets and in capitalism and instead many times have had markets used against them by accident. that's what i've been thinking about, for the '80s, for the next 7 1/2 years i rotated around it. i went to very difficult schools. i worked on one thing over and over again to develop a course, to develop a teaching methodology and lesson plans
to call this glass new. it goes back to the origins of world trade to the east india company and hudson bay company. there is nothing particularly new to be a fruitless soldier and diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman for decades ibm employees have said the initial stand for i have been moved. what is new, the relos themselves, the breadwinners -- i will start -- what is new is growth in numbers of corporate relos, a figure i estimate to be about 10 million people, that is the breadwinners themselves and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade to cite a statistical the goods and services we buy and sell abroad has leaped from about $400 million in 1970 to over 3 trillion now as companies american and foreign compete. they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you've not heard the word reloville because i made it up. it is about workers and families frequently relocating, they are see real long-distance movers. the word relos originated among agents who specialize in catering to them. relo
they voted 44% for bush. how we get the latinos, blacks, asians, india ns, to come over? most of them have conservative values. >> california as tragic as the condition of our state today virtually bankrupt issuing ious this week with a governor does not know he is a republic 10, we have in recent months of passage of proposition a comment the issue to secure the marriage be between one man and one woman and who helped us pass that? of the latino and black community came forward. we need to pick the right issues and carry the right banner to offer to the people something they can relate to. so it believes in family values those are republican values and conservative values that we need to enunciate and welcome them aboard. reagan has plenty of hispanics approaching for them so did george bush the first and florida -- the first four rounds so it is not a matter of the demographics as much as watery offering to the people? >> obama's said he wants to legalize a net large number of illegal aliens there is 12 million even with 1 billion wouldn't that be very decisive in a national election and
and i have trouble bringing in my workers from india or pakistan or singapore or britain? would it be a lot easier for me to move the job to the worker overseas and bring the workers to the job here? >> i had a conversation about three weeks ago with a google executive who is responsible for these decisions, director of global hiring. he says we hire and we locate our facilities wherever we can bring in the till to people we need. he said that at this point they think they basically interviewed everyone in the state of california. google searches the entire country and the entire world to find the best people and he said because it's hard to get the people in the u.s., we will locate in hong kong or singapore or europe and we're seeing microsoft for the first and has moved a research and development facility outside into vancouver because it's easier for them to get the people that want in canada. that is what companies will do. they can get them here they will go elsewhere. >> jackie, does it make sense to say that the mexican people are the ones that suffered the most of 9/11?
opportunities young people have in india and brazil and all these other countries that develop mentally 30 years ago were on a par with the countries they are in now. but they know in the arab world that they have slipped farther and farther behind. so the desire to join the rest of the world, be part of this global trend, i think is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there is one here and in one in the back. >> i am from east africa. i originally am from somebody. i want to share a grievance, from the last two months which gives me some kind of glimpse of hope in the region now we are talking about. what was the launch for the center and training for human rights in doha are. we had commissioner just launch it. and it was a ceremony which i attend. i found activist, and i hope, i say this, for the future. activists from doha are, from kuwait, there was none at all, women began, and some of them come in and speaking of freely because it largely focus on democracy. someone training. but highlighting, pointing out the difficulty and now we're talking about t
's partnership with history which has managed to india the corporate culture even today. unfortunately, although some people would disagree, i think regulators need to get more involved. and having a system whereby a group of bankers is essentially free to develop as fast as they went to the degree that they want with very little external oversight, journalists and regulators and politicians and somehow hope that they will, through sheer goodness of spirit and collective rationality, will keep their activities in check and not go mad, is naive. baking is too important to be left to bankers alone. if the people who run nuclear power plants were paid kilowatt of energy they pump out, so you have to pump out as much as they can and the more they pump out, the more successful they look, it would be over by now. we need to look in banking to other kinds of activity and ask what lessons we can learn about risk control. one of the ironies that everyone talks about, financial engineering, if you are actually an engineer building bridges, you talk about things like safety margins, risk, your talk to deba
they are being replaced by mathematicians from korea, india, china. i teach at usc down the road, and the engineering school and theath and the biological science as well are very heavily asian and asian-american so that like many things in america, we have outsourced maffei learning and we know the people on wall street can't -- [laughter] >> robert a piece of the question was living people versus dead people for lack of a better word. any thoughts on that? >> [inaudible] -- amazing files, chronological material [inaudible] >> welcome the answer is definitely yes. i mean, if you have a story that is exciting to write, i think you should begin to imagine dramatizing it if it's that kind of thing. and it doesn't have to be a competition or categorical choice. you can all go down one road. i think that any story that has human themes that are powerful and moving can be dramatized. i think to dramatize rutherford's life i don't know. i would have to read richard's book. i know that with the wittman's, they live in modest homes in brooklyn, they were a family of carpenters, the fathe
by the inhabit tants of countries as far flown as nigeria, egypt, mesopotamia, turkey, india, china, greece, united kingdom, north america, south america including the greenland eskis. in fact, the two vernacular words that survid in plato's description of atlantis were found to be in sound and meaning -- were found in sound and me meang to have been directly derived from the language environment. so too were 90% of words used by adam andis household especially names of people and places. and there are many. our research includes the origin and meanings of symbols used in every religion and sacd literature all over the world. in these we found that hebrew bible, the kabbalah of the hebrews and the chinese, the hindus and the recently discovered egyptian christian bible was of immense importance in revealing lost knowledge. wherever we looked we found evidence confirming the claims by geneticsists that all mankind came from sub-harrah africa. and it was previously believed that adam and eve were descended from east african lucy. our findings revealed it was not east african but a nigeria are
, of the scope of atrocities that were going on india down. the other thing that you, after john kerry gave his testimony to the senate in 1971, remember, vietnam veterans against the war. after his testimony, the nixon administration, we now know, worked closely with another veterans group that eventually came the veterans, that's kind of the ring, the senate, that worked closely with them to put out a different story to the public. that these guys were liars and fabricators, and in fact, the army records don't show that they were liars. >> thank you. >> incidentally, you mentioned john kerry, you know as probably most of you recall in 2004, he was attacked by the swift boaters when he was running for president for his testimony in 1971, war crimes were a common occurrence in the non. and it was an effective attack that helped defeat him. but one of the people, one of the officers was part of a small group that collected these records in the pentagon is now a retired general, and a vocal opponent to the iraq war. in 2040 contacted the kerry campaign three times. he wanted to tell them that the
-- can you start a company in china today? increasingly you can. a company in india and america better wake up to that fact. they better wake up to the fact that other systems that regulate more, that pay for education and have more efficient healthcare systems are going to start becoming much more competitive economically than we are and we better start taking care of ourselves. and i'm not going to become an idealog. i'm not going to tell you people and i'm certainly not tell the jury or i'm not going to tell this woman who keeps laughing, that the only answer, the only answer -- i always remember this line from sinatra. sir, take your hand off that broad. [laughter] >> we're in las vegas. i can say that. >> what happens here stays here. [laughter] >> we'd better take care of ourselves and i'm not going to become an idealog or use lebron james as an example or ethiopia or tell you fannie mae did it all or distort the numbers or tell you everything is bad about private enterprise. not remotely. i'm going to tell you we better get some balance in america and we've lost that. we've lost
overprotects. now there are two countries that have been very important if resisting this. one is india and the other is brazil. and both of these countries have facilitated a developing -- a development agenda at world intellectual property organization and that developed agenda is beginning to rebalance tease issues, -- these issues, by reminding wipo that it's a u.n. organization, not a committee set up by hollywood and wipo is beginning to understand it has wider interests to consider, than just what the copyright interests will say. so there's some potential for progress, but as long as the u.s. trade representative thinks that his job or her job is to represent one slice of the american economy to its maximum defense, i think we're going to continue to do harm internationally. >> you are now teaching at stanford university. and that's the center for producing the next generation for silicon valley. what do the students, or what do the recent graduates who are now in silicon valley, how do they feel about this and are they trying to find ways to implement what you are suggesting? >
it goes back to the origins of world trade, as far back as the east india company and hudson bay company, nothing particularly new to being a diplomat or preacher or businessman or woman. for decades, ibm employees have said the initials stand for i have been moved. what is new? the growth of the numbers of corporate freeloaders. the breadwinners, i will start -- what is new is the growth in the numbers of corporate relos, a number i estimate to be ten million people. the breadwinners and their families and how that has grown with the growth of the american economy. american foreign trade, to cite a statistic, all the goods and services that we buy and sell abroad, from $400 billion in 1970 to over $3 trillion now. as companies, american and foreign, they need people to carry their banner and build business far from home. you have not heard the word relosville because i made it up. they are cereal long-distance movers. the word relos probably a originated among suburban real estate agents who specify in catering to them. relos tend to reduce the tween moves in relovilles, suburbs caterin
that these people have access in how the world is governed and what opportunities young people have been india, brazil and developmentally 30 years ago with more anbar but they know in the arab world they have slipped further and further behind. the desire to join the rest of the world as part of a global trend is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. other questions or comments? >> originally i am from somalia. the last two months i have had a glimmer of hope one of these was the center for training of human rights event of. we have just launched and i found an activist double feature from bahrain particularly. and women with the traditional attire and some of them went to the trainings but they point* out the difference but together [inaudible] one person from doha was not that much educated but taking a real issue in his country at one point* they said he should be removed from the meeting. so i am thinking that the possibility of the incite with some newspapers the other is the establishment is part of the commission for human rights. where independent people come together maybe this is the
opportunities young people have in india, brazil and all these other countries that developmentally 30 years ago were on par with the countries there. but they know in the arab world they slipped farther and farther behind. so this desire to join the rest of the world and be part of this global trend, i think, is a very powerful tool. >> thank you. are there other questions or comments? there's one here and then one in the back. >> i'm from east africa. originally i'm from somalia. i just want to share with you, which has given me some glimpse of hope in the subregion we were talking about. one was the launch of the arab -- what do you call the office for -- center for the training of human rights in doha with the office of the head commission for human rights. and the ceremony which i attended i found an activist and i hope -- i'm not saying -- the circle will feature activists from doha, from kuwait, from bahrain particularly and women again with their traditional attire and some of them coming and speaking outñk frequently because it's largely focus on government and they went to training. b
